HOI: Stata module to compute Human Opportunity Index
Abstracthoi computes the Human Opportunity Index proposed by Barros et al (2008), including the Coverage of Basic Opportunities (P), the Dissimilarity Index (D), and the Human Opportunity Index (HOI). Analytical standard errors are reported for the P, D, and HOI. The program also computes two decompositions of changes of the HOI: (i) the scale and distribution decomposition Barros et al (2008); and, (ii) the composition, equalization and scale decomposition presented in (Molinas et al, 2010).
